Graham: Telling Garrett ‘no’ does not make you a racist

Posted: Saturday, June 8, 2019 12:00 am

There was a period of time when I had a healthy measure of respect for Monroe City Councilman Norman Garrett.

I felt like he was playing an important role on the council, the contrarian who was holding city officials and city employees accountable in a way they probably hadn’t been in a long time. If ever.
